Ingredients
  Frozen pastry shells 6 Small
  Cooked chicken 2 Cup (32 tbs), cubed or chunked (May Use Leftover Chicken. If Canned Chicken Is Used, Drain Off The Broth)
  Chopped celery 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Mayonnaise 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Almonds 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), coarsely chopped and toasted
  Minced onion 2 Tablespoon
  Lemon juice 1 Tablespoon
  Ground black pepper 1⁄8 Teaspoon
  Pimiento/Red bell pepper 1 , cut into thin half strips
  Finely shredded cheddar monterey jack cheese 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (May Use Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese)
Directions

Bake 6 small pastry shells according to package directions. (I baked mine at 350 degrees for about 6 minutes.) In a large saucepan, combine 2 cups cooked chicken, ¾ cup chopped celery, ¾ cup mayonnaise, ½ cup chopped, toasted almonds, 2 tablespoons minced onion, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper, and 1 pimiento that has been cut into thin half-strips. Cook over low heat until mixture is thoroughly heated, stirring often. Fill partially-baked pastry shells with heated chicken mixture. Sprinkle with shredded cheese, and bake at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes, or until cheese is melted and crust is beginning to brown. Serve immediately. (The tarts may be easily removed from their aluminum foil containers after a minute or so.) If you have additional heated chicken mixture, you may serve the hot chicken salad on a nice serving dish (omitting the cheese topping and the tart shell), for a delightful lower-calorie meal. This is a colorful, inviting, and tasty dish for brunch, lunch, or dinner!
